In recent months I've tried to be more positive in my posts. This one, however, is going to take a negative tone. I'm not just letting my lack of excitement of Nikki Bella dictate my feelings here as I would be writing this same post had Natalya won the captain's spot for the SmackDown Live Survivor Series women's team.

The original challenge made by Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan said "our five best vs. Raw's five best..." That being said the Women's Champion, whether it's still Becky Lynch or Alexa Bliss, should captain the team. It should be that way across the board. It's my understanding Heath Slater and Rhyno are the SmackDown Live tag team elimination match. 

The other issue I have is that Natalya isn't even on the team now, or at least for the time being. To imply she isn't one of the best on the SmackDown Live roster is ridiculous. Once again Nattie gets the shaft. I'm reminding myself to not judge these latest developments until the story plays out, but from the way things look now, I respectfully disagree with the choice in captain and the lack of Nattie in this match.

I hope this doesn't mean Kevin Owens, New Day and Sasha Banks won't be captains of their teams should they still be the champs by Survivor Series...
